Timeless Australian Wedding by Angela Higgins

There's just something to be said about Australian weddings. They're so sweet and genuine and always so beautifully styled and orchestrated. This wedding sent over by the fabulously talented Angela Higgins is no exception either. I just about squealed with excitement when I first looked through the gorgeous photos and then when I found out the bride's name is Pippa, I was completely sold. It's official I am obsessed with Australia. And anything remotely close to relating to the Royal Wedding. And this wedding. This wedding and its guest list of under 20 people, the radiant bride, that skinny tall simple wedding cake, those pretty flowers, and that pink bow. You know I am a sucker for bows. Le sigh. Scroll through all the loveliness guys and you'll see what I mean. 


{From Pippa, the beautiful bride} All we wanted was a fuss-free relaxing time for us and our families so we chose Yallingup for our wedding location because of its wonderful wineries, beaches and food. As we live in Singapore, the whole wedding was arranged via email and we booked everything sight unseen! There were 18 guests (our families) in total and we wanted to create an intimate affair without too much pomp and ceremony. There was no theme for our wedding, and most details just evolved from things we loved. We really wanted to keep things simple and let the natural beauty of the location shine through.

We chose the ceremony locations because of it's beautiful chalets (which we stayed in) and garden, as we wanted an outdoor ceremony. We started to second guess this a few days before when we found out that it was going to be 38 degrees. Thank goodness we had brought fans! After the ceremony we enjoyed champagne, wedding cake, and canapes in the garden. There was also a bocce set to keep the kids (and adults) occupied while we were having photos taken. A bus transported our guests and us to the nearby restaurant for dinner where we had use of a private room and deck for dinner. Everyone was able to choose their own meal and drinks which the guest really appreciated. The food, wine and service were outstanding.

There were so many wonderful parts of the day including our highly entertaining Minister who conducted the ceremony, my Dad lending me $20 because I forgot my 'something borrowed,' and the impromptu speeches after dinner. The most wonderful thing though, was that we were now husband and wife :) One of the best things about having a destination wedding is that in the future, we will get to come back to Yallingup for holidays and relive the beautiful memories of our day all over again.
